this morning. it's changing by the minute out of israel. this morning israeli tv reporting three israelis were killed in rocket strikes in the southern part of the country. this comes as the israeli military has launched an aggressive new campaign to cripple hamas after repeated rocket attacks. as many as 750 this year, they say, launched from gaza into southern israel. last night president obama spoke on the phone with prime minister benjamin netanyahu acknowledging israel's right to defend itself but also urging him to not have civilian casualties. this youtube video showing an air strike yesterday killing the top military commander of hamas. it was part of a widespread campaign against targets that the israeli military says it will broaden in the coming days. this morning defense forces dropped leaflets over gaza warning residents to stay away from hamas operatives. on twitter, a clear message from israeli defense forces. quote, we recommend that no hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night w
-- perhaps israel -- would face. they've already tested their missiles to show what a retaliatory strike on tel aviv would be. these drills also have the intended consequence of raising the price a little bit. the iranians are saying, okay, it's going to cost more if you bomb us, therefore, if we come to the negotiating table, we want more. and this all has to be looked at in the prism, if you will, of u.s./israel relations after the elections here. the prime minister here in israel, prime minister netanyahu, and president obama have a very icy relationship. the prime minister all but endorsed governor romney in the past election, and there's been a lot of fear here that now a second term president obama will take a much tougher line against israel when it comes to iran, when it comes to the palestinians. there has been some vocal, hostile, very negative reaction here by israeli politicians to president obama's re-election, and there's a lot of anger at the prime minister for making israel and the united states' support of israel a partisan issue, a political issue during the presidentia
a nuclear weapon? the problem is it leaves israel out of the equation. even though the united states and iran and the obama administration might come to that kind of a deal. forget about the consequences that deal might have, israel isn't going to necessarily like that deal. and if israel perceives it's been isolated and it's on its own they may do something, preemptive strike against iran. while israel can start that war. it can't finish it. and that's why iran did what it did. it wanted to show the united states that whatever happens between israel and iran, don't realize -- don't forget the fact that the united states will be drawn into it, too. i think it was a warning shot from iran. shannon: the white house denied there are secret talks involving valley jarrod. they say it's absolutely not happening. this isn't the first time we heard a report along these lines. what is your sense? >> my sense is we probably are -- maybe not directly negotiating with iran. but there have been suggestions the united states and iran are looking into some kind of diplomacy. one of the first things
of military activity in the middle east and it may push israel to the brink of war in gaza where militants fired more than 100 rockets in recent days, sparking retaliatory airstrikes from israel. this comes amid fears that israel, by far our closest ally in the middle east could be drawn into syria's civil war. now that its tanks struck a syrian artillery launcher after a stray mortar shell flew into the golan heights. the fighting from syria reaching turkey for the second straight day. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with the latest. leland? >> reporter: rick, right now the big concern in terms of the civil war is just how close the syrians civil war is getting to its borders, namely with turkey and also here with israel. the airstrikes we have watched over the past couple of days along the turkish border were shots from turkey, meaning that is how close the planes were and the turks for their part have promised to shoot down any syrian air force jet that ends up inside turkey airspace. that of course could have a whole cascading range of effects going down. the air force for the syri
to have potentially serious consequences for israel. obviously, palestine is not a state in the customary international law. this is purely political decision. it caps 20 years of efforts by the palestinians to reach this point because it will give them an advantage in their negotiations with israel. they will use it to try and achieve that advantage and exceeding the treaties they will then use against israel and try to coax more money out of the u.n. system and the donor community and a variety of other ways. >>neil: you don't buy the argument pushing for statehood that when they have their own country the violence stops? >>guest: i remember 30 years ago in the reagan administration i heard a retired foreign service officer say just give them a piece of ground they can put a flag in and everything will be fine. well, they have ground with flags this them and it is still not resolved. the point is not the boundaries of a palestinian state and where they might be drawn in gaza or the west bank but the issue is what kind of state is going to be on the other side of the boundaries and we kn
mortar shell landed at an israeli base in the golan heights. israel warning the united nations that while the response is measured this time, it will respond with greater force if is syria's civil war continued to spill over the border into israel. the israeli strike was the first direct engagement with syria in nearly 40 years. this image shows the destruction in the goal hahn heights during the 1973 yom kippur war. we'll have much more on the developing story. jenna: a frightening robbery caught on camera. how police think the suspects may have used superstorm sandy to their advantage. we'll have that. >>> dozens of people left homeless after a deadly house explosion destroys an entire main hood. what caused this blast? we're live with the latest on that mystery next. rick: right now some new information on some crime stories we're keeping an eye on for you. testimony concluding in the preliminary hearing for an american soldier charged with killing 16 afghan civilians. staff sergeant robert bales listened as several children testified by video link about the massacre on the 11th of mar
gauze why and israel and playing out in egypt. bring us up to speed. the rebels made some advancements. >> the rebels have scored some successes. they have captured a couple of rather small but still significant military installations, one little air base, they got a tank out of it, they destroyed a couple of helicopters, destroyed another couple of tanks that was seen -- because it was very close to damascus, seen as a major victory for them. moreover, moreover they changed their strategy. their strategy of trying to go into a major city, take it, and hold it. and they get pulverized in bombing campaigns that took so much of a toll on the civilian population. going right after the military, the military centers in and doing so, they're gaining arms. and expertise. there are more people that are joining them, the syrian military still a formidable force and the rebels probably not a match for them toe to toe but gaining strength. >> we know the geography, turkey to the north, turkey considering putting missiles on the border now? >> they're asking nato to consider it. they're sending a

type of individual who is ready to stand very, very firmly by u.s. allies, particularly israel. and someone who is very different by nature with, compared with president obama. melissa: so what do you think he would do on day one that would stop iran in its tracks? >> he has himself said that he is ready to tough inch the sanctions which are already in place. and, i also believe that it would send sufficient signals to tehran they need to capitulate their nuclear program. they have absolutely no opportunity to once more use the delaying tactics to give some kind of negotiations in order to gain time. let's not forget. right now president obama's government is engaged in secret talks with iran. all that sends the wrong signals to the regime in tehran because they believe they can gain time having this kind of negotiations. melissa: i hear you but, say mitt romney were elected and came in with an iron fist. wouldn't that cause them to accelerate the timeline that we better do this quick and because the u.s. is not messing around and they get to the bomb quicker? >> regime has use

one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
